We'll miss you friends!

I have some major catching up to do, and I figured the best thing to do is to start with the most recent things and then 'catch up' as I can.

Our friends the Lee, Denise, and Jackson officially moved yesterday to NC. Lee got a major promotion at a great company in NC. He's going to be vice president or something crazy like that. So sad for us, but we are so excited for them. What an opportunity and blessing!

We've been spending tons of time with them the last few weeks getting in every bit of Jack that we could. Landree and Jackson play SO well together. They actually play the best together of all of her little friends. They are only 9 days apart, and we are going to miss them terribly. Along with Lee and Denise too. They lived about 1/4 of a mile or less from us so aside from having a great friend near by it was super convenient to stop by for an egg, pepper, or whatever exotic spice I needed (like cumin :). I called her last night after they stopped by to tell us by on their way out of town and told her to stop the moving truck I needed some oregano. What will we do without them?

All joking aside...Lee and Denise moved here the same time we did, we started attending the church around the same time, they've been in the same family group as us, served in our youth ministry, we were due a day apart and had Jack and Landree only 9 days apart, and have lived so close to each other for so long it's hard to imagine what it will be like without them right down the street. We plan to visit a lot! Here are a few pictures from a little going away party we planned for them.

We had the party in our youth room at church and the kids had so much fun playing the piano and singing :)



Poor John Parker was sick, but isn't he cute?







We love ya'll friends and miss you already. See you soon! :)

I agree with you. It is sad to know they are not right down the street, but just a new place for us to visit.

Love the pictures. Need to get these. :)
